Want to learn more about ants? A lot more?
California Academy of Sciences offers an ant course every year. This year it will be held August 15 – 25 at the Danum Valley Field Centre, Sabah Borneo. The course is for “systematists, ecologists, behaviorists, conservation biologists, and other biologists whose research responsibilities require a greater understanding of ant taxonomy and field research techniques.”
I’m afraid I won’t make it this year, but if it is ever held in Portal again, I’m all over it.
For more information, see the ant course home page. Be sure to check out the yearbook to see what the classes have done in the past.
Edit: The link has changed. See Ant Course 2011 for more recent links.
